Enables SPARKS to have bonds. Because AI has favourites too. Sparks prefer to bond with other Sparks.

Some bond skills are deliberately excluded by Firaxis for SPARKS. I have not changed any of those limitations.

I have two Sparks bonded with each other and when in combat they don't have any of the bond abilities available. Does this only work with 1 Spark and 1 human?

Hello, @Yagisan. Very cool mod. I do wish it could fully bond with others (i.e. teamwork), but I can see it as a balance.
Is raising SPARK CI also hardcoded and very difficult like giving them bidirectional bonds?

I get to here in a Robots on covert actions mod, but I don't know how to make SPARK eligible or to remove the check entirely.

static function bool IsNewUnitValidForIntSlot(XComGameState_StaffSlot SlotState, StaffUnitInfo UnitInfo)
local XComGameState_Unit Unit;

Unit = XComGameState_Unit(`XCOMHISTORY.GetGameStateForObjectID(UnitInfo.UnitRef.ObjectID));

if (Unit.ComInt >= eComInt_Savant || (!Unit.GetSoldierClassTemplate().bAllowAWCAbilities && !Unit.IsResistanceHero())) //not a soldier hero NOR can it get AWC abilities
// If this unit is already at the max Com Int level, they are not available
return false;

return IsNewUnitValidForCovertActionSoldierSlot(SlotState, UnitInfo);

Just curious about your take on this.

@Tatourmi - Yes.

Aere the other bonding skills still working?

I'll try some more tests when I get some free time, but I'm not going to push out any changes I am not happy with.

@Yagisan, if a bondmate could grant an action *to* the SPARK, even if the SPARK couldn't grant one back - that would still be pretty sweet.

I have a technitian bonded to a SPARK right now. They're becoming a pretty great duo.

The SPARK does have a point animation - is it the same point animation that soldiers use when granting actions? The sparks use it when using the fear ability and for something else that I don't remember atm.
